Wildlife On the Lose, Warns KWS

Peter Musila 3 years ago

Kenya Wildlife Service warns of a possibility of the wildlife moving from their habitats in search of food and water as dry season hits hard.

“The ongoing dry spell being experienced in most parts of the country is displacing wildlife from their traditional habitats in search of pasture and water. This has increased conflict as the wildlife comes into contact with the public and human activities,” said a statement from the KWS on Friday.

Some of the areas that have had such incidents in the previous weeks include Narok, Taita Taveta, Laikipia, Kajiado, Meru, Mau, Marsabit, Lamu and the Mt. Kenya region with similar incidents expected to increase in the coming months.

However, they (KWS) have assured the public that they have improved their surveillance measures and tactics to ensure minimal cases are reported.

“Foot, vehicle and aerial patrols have been intensified to manage the situation,” the KWS said.

The public has also been cautioned the public against setting fires near protected areas as fires might spread into the said areas hence worsening the conflict.
